This past Sunday, our Lord's Day, I worshipped with my church family, just as I said I would do, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).
I must admit, it was a truly unique day.
Not just in one (1) way. But, actually in two (2) ways.
Just so you know, in case you're not aware, when I post LwL, I do so at midnight.
There are days when I write the entry just before I post it. Other times, I may write it in advance and set it to be posted at that time.
That's what I did for Sunday's LwL entry.
When our worship service began, we sang chorus' and various newer worship songs. Just like we normally do.
During our service we usually sing a couple of hymns. Just like we did on Sunday.
To my surprise, the first hymn was the same hymn that I had posted here on LwL. Wow! Was I surprised!
Whenever something like this happens, a thought usually comes to my mind. About how great minds think alike... yet, fools seldom differ.
My church family, the music leader and our pastor are not foolish. Nor, am I. So, I knew for certain that this was a case where great minds thought alike! :)
The hymn was used by both me for my blog, and for my church family is entitled, Come Ye Thankful People Come. Here is a link to LwL's entry for that day, so you can read, listen and/or sing along: http://www.lifewithlynnie.com/2014/10/thankful-people.html.
Thinking about how my church family members who planned the music we were to honour God and worship Him with, and I, thought about worship music in a similar way, made me think about Philippians 2:2, "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind."
How wonderful it is that we thought about the same hymn!
We were obviously all filled with joy. And, were likeminded. Anyone who knows us, knows that we are of one accord, one mind, thinking about how we need to be joyful and have the same love.
When I first noticed this, it brought an immediate smile to my face. And, to my heart. Which was the first time I had smiled all weekend, since the beginning of this past weekend of celebrating Thanksgiving here in Canada, is always rather heartbreaking for me.
So, I thanked God. And, praised Him.
After all, I knew in my heart, what a blessing this was. Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
